Designated STATE 
Normal School. 

Education and the idea that there should be 
excellence in teaching was the cause for the 
establishment in 1839 of the first state- 
supported Normal School in America at 
Lexington, Massachusetts. This school was 
devoted to the training of teachers as excel- 
lent educators, and in this pursuit the school 
which now bears the name Framingham 
State College continues in the same tradition 
to maintain an excellence among its gradu- 
ates, many of whom after graduation enter 
teaching careers. The high standards set for 
the school by Cyrus Peirce and by Horace 
Mann continue to be the measure of today's 

The origins of the First Normal School and 
the historical forces which brought about its 
creation are many. The history of the school 
could be traced from the beginnings of the 
protestant reformation in Europe and the be- 
lief that all Christians should have the ability to 
read and judge the scriptures for themselves. 

Horace Mann and Edmund Dwieht. 

The early. Puritan settlers of Massachusetts 
were firm believers in public education for re- 
ligious reasons, and they were responsible for 
the creation of Harvard College in 1636 and 
also of the Grammar and Dame schools in the 
Bay Colony. The Dame schools were the be- 
ginnings of local elementary schools. The 
grammar schools were the beginnings of the 
high school system. These institutions were 
created by the Puritans to maintain a level of 
cultural sophistication in the New World 
which they feared would be lost living so far 
and with so little communication with En- 

Working with this force of religious free- 
dom, a new force of political freedom also 
emerged leading to the creation of the 
Normal Schools. In order to have an elec- 
torate able to make educated decisions re- 
garding who should lead and who should be 
elected, the early Americans understood the 
importance of reading, writing, and mathem- 
atics in producing able citizens and voters. 
Education was indispensable to the common 
people if they were to govern themselves; thus 
education was vital to the young republic. 
Massachusetts had long believed in the nec- 
essity of public education but after the Re- 
volutionary War this need was never more ob- 
vious. The public had to be educated, and 
education therefore became a public respon- 

In the first decades of the 1 800's, the level 
of education in Massachusetts school was 
poor. Teachers were incapable of educating 
their students because they themselves had 
received poor educations and were not 
grounded in simple arithmetic and grammar. 
There was no system of regulating teachers or 
of determining who was qualified to teach. 
Social reform was needed and a debate 
began in the Boston State House which was to 
be instrumental in the founding of Framing-

Three men were responsible for the cre- 
ation at Lexington of the First Normal School. 
They were Horace Mann, Cyrus Peirce, and 
Edmund Dwight. These men between them 
were to supply, each in his own way, the nec- 
essary attention and labor for the survival of 
the school which started as a three year ex- 
periment. Horace Mann lead the party which 
sought to establish the Normal Schools, 
which were schools dedicated to the training 
of teachers. These schools existed in France 
and Prussia before they were established in 
Massachusetts. The state legislature in ex- 
amining the issue of state schools studied the 
operation of these schools in Europe and 
their establishment in Massachusetts was 
eventually seen as necessary. Opposition to 
the Normal schools came from those who be- 
lieved that education should not be publicly 
funded for women in higher education. The 
schools were believed unnecessary but in 
1838, Governor Everett of Massachusetts 
signed a bill which called for the establish- 
ment of the three schools established first at 
Lexington, then at Bare and finally at Bridge- 
water in 1 840. All three of these schools exist 
today. The first is located at Framingham, the 
second is in Westfield and the third is Bridge- 
water State College. While Horace Mann lead 
the fight to establish the Normal schools in 
Massachusetts, he also convinced phil- 
anthropist Edmund Dwight of the need as 
well. It was Dwight who provided the initial 
funds needed by the school for equipment

While Horace Mann managed to convince the 
legislature of the need to establish the Normal 
schools and then brought those schools about, it 
was the Normal School's first principal, Cyrus 
Peirce, who made the Normal School in Lexing- 
ton the initial success that it was. Peirce dedicated 
himself totally to the school and he was the sole 
instructor of the famous first class of 1 840. These 
twenty-five women would themselves go on to 
educate, and Peirce was responsible for their 
training. Peirce offered his students an education 
which was the best he could provide and despite 
initial difficulties and despair that can be read in 
his journal, the school flourished. Besides the 
classes for the Normal School students, there 
also was established a model school where 
Peirce's students could be trained by teaching 
their own students. These training sessions, now 
called field study and student teaching, are still an 
essential part of the education department today. 
Peirce's contribution to the Normal schools 
cannot be overstated. Without him the school 
would not have been the success that it was. 
Horace Mann provided the political stage for the 
creation of the Normal Schools. Edmund Dwight 
supported these schools with his personal funds. 
Cyrus Peirce equipped and established the 
schools and became the motivating factor for his 

students. These three men insured between them 
the continuation of so important a part of the 
public education system of Massachusetts. 

The First Normal School in America was a pre- 
cedent in the education of women. Though 
private schools existed for the education of young 
women, for the first time public education con- 
cerned itself with the higher education of women 
to become educators. In time, the women who 
attended the Normal School would choose other 
careers for themselves besides education. Some 
would go on to be lawyers and doctors. Others 
chose to be missionaries and authors. This 
school which was created for excellence in the 
education of children became a place for educa- 
tion for its own sake. The importance of this is self 
evident. Women deserve the same educational 
chances as men and though it took time, the 
Normal School was the place where women 
could expect to receive a comparable education 
to that which men received. Women in time would 
even lead the Normal Schools as principal. This 
would occur twice in the history of the school. 

The three year experiment to see if the Normal 
schools would be a benefit to the Commonwealth 
showed that not only were the schools necessary, 
but they were indispensable to public education. 
They were a concept which was essential to

Framingham, Massachusetts responded to the needs of the Normal School. The town offered the neces- 
sary funds and the tract of land on the present site where May Hall stands today. The relationship which 
began in 1853 was to be mutually beneficial to both the town and the college. Framingham proved to be 
an excellent site for the new school providing access to transportation, a centrally located position in the 
state, and an excellent site for the school on Bare Hill. 

society and in 1841 when Peirce resigned as 
principal of the Lexington Normal school, their 
future was assured. The Normal schools pro-

these classes that the young

With the celebration of the first twenty-five 
years of Framingham State College, the 
people attending the graduation ceremony in 
1 864, learned of the struggles that the school 
had overcome to become the institution it 
had, through the welcoming words of Electa 
Lincoln Walton. "From a child whose life was 
so precarious that it would seem a breath 
might blow it away ... it has become an Alma 
Mater — our Alma Mater." While all who at- 
tended were impressed with the school's ac- 
complishments, the school was to face many 
changes in the next twenty-five years, contain- 
ing the accomplishments of many alumni 
who would return to their school to give back 
what they had learned. 

One of the most noticeable changes oc- 
curred in 1 865 when Annie Johnson, assis- 
tant to Cyrus Peirce, served as acting principal 
from the fall of 1 865 until the spring of 1 866. 
Due to her excellent leadership and ability to 
run the school, Annie Johnson was inaugu- 
rated as principal as recommended by the 
members of the board. Under Miss Johnson's 
administration the school was pushed by her 

desire to improve the programs for the 
students, being a strong advocate for the pro- 
gram proposed to add another two years of 
advanced study. 

Miss Johnson also restored the school 
back to it's original purpose of teaching. 
When the school had moved to Framingham 
there was difficulty as to where the model 
school would be and it was not reestablished 
until Miss Johnson was principal. The school 
also took part in expansion when the leg- 
islature allowed funds to expand the campus, 
building a boarding house and renovating the 
school house. After giving to the school and 
being paid the lower wages of being a woman 
teacher, when Miss Johnson was offered a job 
as principal at another school which paid 
much more money she accepted the job. 

This forced the members of the board to 
look again to find a replacement and she was 
found in Ellen Hyde, alumna, teacher and 
senior assistant to Miss Johnson. Miss Hyde 
worked to expand the school working with 
Blacks and Indians, while taking on boarders 
at the boarding house and accepting a

Normal Hall & Dormitory. 

When the school moved to the 
present site on Bare Hill in 1853 
Normal Hall was constructed, fol- 
lowed by a dormitory built in 1869 
on newly acquired land. The dormi- 
tory was renamed Normal Hall to 
commemorate the original Normal 
Hall which was torn down in 1870 
to construct a better equipped 
building for the school. The dormi- 
tory. Normal Hall, was burned on 
February 13. 1914. 

number of "train girls", the predecessors to 
commuters. The minority students came 
from an association that Miss Hyde formed 
with the Hampton School, a school for Blacks 
in the South. It is through this school that 
Framingham Normal School had an associa- 
tion with Olivia Davidson Washington, the co- 
founder of Tuskeegee Institute with her hus- 
band Booker T. Washington. Mrs. Wash- 
ington studied at Framingham in an ex- 
change program with Hampton. Framing- 
ham also were sent Annie Dawson, an Indian 
from South Dakota who studied and then re- 
turned to her reservation to work with her 
people. It is in this way that Miss Ellen Hyde 
added to the school's expansion. As the 
fiftieth anniversary approached the school 
grew, the model school, now called the prac- 
tice school had increased in size under the 
watchful eye of Miss Hyde and the campus 
had expanded once again to include another 
dormitory, Crocker Hall, named for Lucretia 
Crocker, an alumna and Science Supervisor 
for the Boston schools. The building burned 
within the year and it was rebuilt as soon as 
possible and still stands today. 

On July 2, 1 889, during the fiftieth anniver- 
sary celebrations of the First Normal School 
in America, Principal Ellen Hyde gave the 
Address of Welcome. She stated, "... keep 
the old school abreast with all the progress of 
the future, that she may come to her centen- 
nial day with her eye undimmed and her 

strength unabated, crowned with the honors 
of age, but still keeping the vigor of immortal 

As Miss Hyde spoke of the school being 
crowned with the honors of age but still keep- 
ing the vigor of immortal youth; the statement 
had reference to her own life in that she had 
been asked to step down just one month pre- 
viously. She was given the honor of the per- 
manent appointment of President of the 
Association and a resolution of recognition 
and praise was sent to the press. It is on this 
note that the tenure of Ellen Hyde was 
brought to a close. 

The school then prepared for the arrival of 
the new principal Henry Whittemore. The 
changes made by Whittemore in the begin- 
ning were gradual. They involved the hiring of 
new instructors for the Household Arts De- 
partment and Physics and Chemistry depart- 
ments as well as a director for the Glee Club. 
In the years following there would be reorga- 
nization on the campus, involving a school 
that needed to expand, with a new dormitory 
reserved for people outside Framingham who 
wanted to take part in the new and very suc- 
cessful Household Arts Program. This pro- 
gram was a two year program which incorpo- 
rated study of the sciences with learning

for the future. On February 13, 1914, Normal

came upon the college, they had lost one of 
the original foundations while at the same 
time receiving word that a new dormitory 
would be built behind Crocker Hall. The old 
and the new coming together in a bid to look 
toward the future. 

From 1914 on, the school obtained a dif- 
ferent look, more confident than before, with 
changes going on right before the eyes of 
those involved. Cornerstones were laid for 
both Peirce Hall and Horace Mann. The Prac- 
tice School which had expanded even more 
was moved to a local school on the Framing- 
ham Common. In addition Framingham Nor- 
mal was picked to be the headquarters for the 
Vocational Program for women that had just 
been instituted by the Legislature. With all of 
this change also came the beginning of World 
War I, where the women attending the college 
became involved in sewing and cooking to

help those in the war. 

After the war, the country was thrown into 
the spirit of the twenties, yet Framingham 
Teachers College, as it was now called, still in- 
sured that its students would be at all times, 
representatives of the college and they would 
go on to instruct future generations. It is in this 
time that Mr. Whittemore leaves his post and 
the school goes through two different short 
term principals Edward Chalmers and 
Francis Bagnall. During this time, ground was 
broken for another academic building, which 
would come to be known as Dwight Hall in 
1937. This progress was dampened by the 
burning of May Hall in 1 935 as well as the con- 
demning of Crocker Hall as a dormitory. 

After this time of somewhat standstill for the 
college, there was a new principal (now called 
President) appointed in 1935. Once again 
Framingham rebuilt from it's tragedies and 
prepared to look toward the future under a 
new president, Martin F. O'Connor. The be- 
ginning of O'Connor's tenure served not to be 

8 Sesquicentennial 

an easy task. In 1 938, the campus was hit with 
a hurricane which destroyed the roofs of 
Dwight, May, Wells and Crocker Halls. Formal 
repairs were started right away, due to the up- 
coming centennial celebration. Upon recog- 
nition of this milestone, which featured a 
pageant and hymns from the choir, Martin F. 
O'Connor prepared to move wholeheartedly 
into his duties as president. From this point on 
he could overlook all of the troubles experi- 
enced by the college and look toward plans 
for the future. 

Martin F. O'Connor was an admired man, 
who had the ability to know a little bit about all 
of the students on his campus. He was outgo- 
ing and always there for the faculty and the 
students. Under the tutelage of O'Connor, 
several advances took place. The division of 
Continuing Education was established in 
1956, The Household Arts became Home 
Economics, and co-curricular activities were 
beginning to increase in popularity. Some of 
these included, Hilltop Players, Hillel, Music 
Club and the inception of Faculty-Student 
Field Day as well as overall interest in things 
outside the classroom. In this way, the college 
made its first steps in realizing that the student 
had other needs outside of the classroom. 

Martin F. O'Connor contributed to the overall 
growth in the school not only in programs but 
in the pride and honor connected with 
Framingham. In 1961 , he chose to step down 
as president and hand the responsibility of a 
growing institution to someone capable of 
bringing the State College at Framingham, 
(official title as of 1960), to new heights. 

He was succeeded by D. Justin McCarthy. It 
was during his tenure that the most noticeable 
changes took place, starting with the change 
of name to Framingham State College. This 
was the first of many changes to come. These 
included, the growing programs to include 
many outside of the teaching realm some in- 
clude Art, Media (now Communication Arts), 
History and more of an all encompassing 
world of knowledge. With the acceptance of 
men in 1964, the school grew to not only 
trained to teach the future, but also those who 
will contribute to the world in other ways. 

Seventh-five years after Ellen Hyde spoke 
those words, the school celebrated its one 
hundred and twenty-fifth anniversary under 
President D. Justin McCarthy. The century be- 
tween 1 864 and 1 964 was to mark a period of 
preserving the past while at the same time 
recognizing the needs of change and preserv-

First Normal School in America, excellence in 

Hyde spoke of youth, progress, and the 
realization of high ideals. Her words and the 
general expression of those words by so many 
talented women who sought to bring a reality 
to them, did not waiver. 1964 marked one of 
the most important changes in the history of 
the Normal School. Male students were en- 
rolled for the first time at the College. Physical 
expansion of school buildings was dramatic- 
ally changing the look of the campus as well 
as the addition of new residence halls. Hyde 
herself would never recognize Framingham 
State College as the successor of the Normal 
School. Though the College has changed 
completely in the past twenty-five years it is to 
the period of 1864 and 1964 that today's 
Framingham can look to for its most impor- 
tant historical legacies and its ideological and 
philosophical base. Education and the 
Household Arts later incorporated into Home 
Economics in 1 898 were the focus of studies 
at Framingham during this period of one hun- 
dred Septembers. Since 1 964, the process of 
transition from a small women's college to the 
college we know today has been remarkable. 
In the complexity of that change and the com- 
plete alteration of both academic study which 
came about through the addition of new 

majors and more involved and specialized 
courses, and the ever improving and higher 
standards set for students in the tradition of 
excellence inherited from the days of Cyrus 
Peirce. It is to Hyde and her contemporaries 
that we can look in thanks for maintaining the 
very best of the school's tradition while insur- 
ing that the education received was at the 
highest possible level. It was a period of con- 
tinuity and endless refinement. It sought to re- 
main at the forefront of education and it never 
lost its Utopian goal of perfection. In inheriting 
this desire, we can hear the challenge Hyde 
set for both herself and her fellow graduates of 
the school. "Change must and will come 
about but if the college is to prosper, we must 
always remember the purpose of the Normal 
School and the reason for its creation." 

Though Framingham graduates may 
never have heard of Principal Ellen Hyde, they 
certainly know of Framingham's high goals. 
Though the speakers of the words may not be 
remembered, the value they placed on educa- 
tion has been passed on to the modern day. 
There are physical reminders on campus of 
this time period, May Hall, Crocker Hall, and 
other buildings, but it is the ideological base 
that separates and defines the problems that 
we must deal with today. A better society is 
brought about through education and there- 
fore educators must have the highest possible

Peirce Hall: 

Peirce Hall was completed in 1915. replacing the burned 
dormitory Normal Hall. This building was named in honor of 
"Father" Cyrus Peirce. the Normal School's first principal. 
Since 1915 Peirce Hall has served as a dormitory and it was 
in this building that the first school cafeteria was located, in 
the rooms now occupied by the Center for Academic Sup- 
port Activities formally known as the College Skills Center.

standards. This was Ellen Hyde's challenge. It 
is one that today's Framingham State College 
still sets for itself. 

Cyrus Peirce, Horace Mann, and those who 
believed in the importance of education 
passed on an inheritance which was highly 
praised by Hyde and the educators and 
administrators who followed her. 1864 
marked a turning point for the College, and 
through education is not the only area of 
study at today's school, excellence remains 
the focus of Framingham students. With ever 
modified and improved academic programs, 
an honest desire to gain an education, and the 
drive to make a difference through that learn- 
ing, we continue to hold to the principles 
which set Framingham an important place in 
today's higher educational system. The First 
Normal School in America has in the past and 
will continue in the future to play an important 
role in education and in the endless process 
of the improvement of our society.

12 Sesquicentennial 

The period of 1 964 to 1 989 has been a time 
of change and progress for all the nation. In 
that time we have seen five different pres- 
idents, the Vietnam War, man's first landing 
on the moon, Watergate, and Iran Contra. As 
the country both thrived and suffered under 
the far-reaching events of the time, education 
grew and improved. 

This improvement could be seen in 
Framingham State College itself. Three years 
before, in 1961, Martin F. O'Connor had reti- 
red and D. Justin McCarthy had taken the 
presidency of this institution. After such a 
popular president as O'Connor it would be 
hard to make an impression as an incoming 
administrator. In those first years. McCarthy 
also had to face upheaval, in that there were a 
great many personnel changes leaving him 

with a brand new start with very little old stand- 
ards to fall back on. 

As far as academic programs, plans were 
immediately made to expand the curriculum 
to include new Masters of Education and 
Bachelor of Science in Education programs. 
Due to the expansion of degrees the college 
was called upon to construct a new building, 
the Mary Hemenway Hall. 

In the first years McCarthy had to face many 
new responsibilities, which included the dedi- 
cations of the new Martin F. O'Connor dormi- 
tory and Hemenway Hall, as well as planning 
and hosting the upcoming 125 anniversary of 
the college. As the college looked upon it's 
anniversary in May of 1964, the school pro- 
vided displays depicting the history of the col- 
lege in twenty-five year spans. Guest Speaker 

Dr. Abraham Sachar, the first president of 
Brandeis University spoke on the unrest and 
turmoil in the world by asking "What is Right 
in the World?" All could see that the one thing 
that was headed for the future was education. 
In education, people hold hope that the prob- 
lems of today are solved by the knowledge of 

As Framingham looked toward the future, 
they found ways to expand their college in 
best possible ways. In 1964, with the first ac- 
ceptance of men as undergraduate students 
came the next logical progression to include 
the expansion of the academic program. With 
the acceptance of both men and women 
came a wider interest in the programs of 
study. Programs that were inaugurated in- 
cluded English, History, Biology, and Medical 
Technology. From this point on, until 1972, a 
committee worked together to further in- 
crease the offered courses at Framingham 
State College and to develop a general educa- 
tion core that would allow the student to have

burned on February 13.1914. The building was not finally demolished until after the First World War when construction began on Horace

in 1920 and is connected to Peirce through a tunnel in the basements of the two buildings. This tunnel is now closed.

Crocker Hall. 

In 1887 the oldest building still standing on the campus was built and named Crocker Hall in honor of Lucretia Crocker, the first women 
supervisor of the Boston Public Schools and an alumna f 1 850J. Crocker Hall, the second dormitory built, was damaged in the hurricane of 
1 938 and work began on Crocker Hall at this time to fire proof the building. Today Crocker Hall serves as faculty offices for the Philosophy, 
Psychology. Sociology. Economics, and some Education departments. 

has continued to better the academic pro- 
gram, creating the Communication Arts Pro- 
gram by combining the Speech and Media 
Departments. In general, Dr. Weller has spent 
the beginning of his administration reviewing 
the educational process at Framingham State 
College and has worked to improve it so it will 
continue to move the college toward the 

a well-rounded education. With the cur- 
riculum expansion of the college also came 
more buildings. The early seventies saw the 
construction of Lamed, Towers, Linsley, and 
Foster: all residence halls on campus, and the 
multipurpose D. Justin McCarthy College 
Center building. With this roster of the great 
amount of expansion that the college did in 
the past two decades, we see that the eighties 
have gone along the same route. The begin- 
ning of the new decade also brought a new 
building, Hemenway Annex and in 1985 a 
new president to our institution, Dr. Paul F. 
Weller. During his administration, the college

Alumni of Framingham have gone on to accomplish a 
sweeping number of achievements. Initially the college's 
principal function was to serve as a place for the training of 
teachers, and Framingham graduates served to bring 
about the highest standards of education in the Com- 
monwealth aided by the years they learned from and 
spent at Framingham. Not all graduates at Framingham 
however became teachers. The women of the first one 
hundred and twenty-five classes at the First Normal 
school worked to distinguish themselves among their 
peers no matter what field they chose. 

Mary Swift Lamson of the first class to graduate from 
the Normal school at Lexington was to become an inspi- 
ration for following graduates. Her works with the Boston 
W.Y.CA were extensive and she was one of its initial 
founders. Her work with the blind was to eventually inspire 
Helen Keller to learn to speak. Mary Swift Lamson was to 
be Framingham's first success story but not its last. She 
stands first in a long list of women whose work has helped 
to fashion the way we see the world. 

A graduate of the school in 1 843, Electa Lincoln Walton 
was to serve as the first woman principal of the Normal 
School in Framingham and she was a woman who took 
the social concerns and the problems which faced 
women seriously. She was a woman whose essential 
strengths included a desire to see women elevated from 
the second-class role in which they were held by the times 
and she was an ardent suffrage advocate. Walton was a 
woman who refused to be less than she could be to satisfy 
her society and she in turn helped to form the image of 
women as educators and leaders. She was a woman not 
to be dismissed lightly and she remains an inspiration to 
following graduates of the school. Her love of mathe- 
matics was to be similarly held by another graduate of the 
school, Lucretia Crocker. 

Lucretia Crocker was not only a woman of rare abilities 
she also possessed a remarkable ability to accept chal- 
lenges and to succeed. She was the first woman super- 
visor of the Boston Public School systems and was in- 
fluential in making the Boston Society for Natural History 
the success it soon became. She was an organizer, an 
educator, and a woman who deserves to be remembered 
as one of the very few at Framingham who were able to 
conceive of grand designs and to see their creation during 
her own lifetime. In her less then sixty years, Lucretia 
Crocker was a role model for the goals of alumni. 

Ellen Hyde was the second woman to perform the func- 
tions of the Principal of the First Normal School, and it was 
during her administration at Framingham that the school 
entered the twentieth century. Hyde was a graduate of 
Framingham in 1 862. Her appointment as principal of the 
school in 1 875 was to mark a time of progress which was 
to see the completion of May and Crocker Halls and the 
long term attention of the school towards the education of 
miniorities. Hyde was an able administrator and was

dearly loved by her students. Her connection with the 
school was to be life-long and she served as President 
of the Alumni Association from the time of her resigna- 
tion in 1 898 until her death in 1 926. Ellen Hyde was a 
woman who perceived the future and sought to bring 
Framingham into the twentieth century with her end- 
less strength and fortitude. She stands as one of Fram- 
ingham's most gifted graduates. 

Olivia Davidson Washington was to be instrumental 
in the establishment of the Tuskeegee Institute in 
Alabama. She was a graduate of Framingham's class 
of 1 881 . With Booker T. Washington, who was later to 
be her husband, Davidson helped to establish the 
Normal School section of Tuskeegee on similar lines 
as the Framingham School. Her career in trying to es- 
tablish a place for the higher education blacks places 
her at the fore front of the black movement in this 
country. Her example to other black women was to be 
enormously important at a time when education for 
blacks was of poor quality. 

Many graduates chose to work in education but 
none received higher honors than Sophia Faulkner of 
the class of 1867. In 1872 Miss Faulkner went to En- 
gland to work for the Royal College for the Blind. Even- 
tually she married Mr. Francis Campbell and their work 
was so successful that Campbell was knighted by 
Queen Victoria. Lady Campbell was not the only grad- 
uate of Framingham to travel abroad to educate and 
inspire. Corrina Shattuck, 1873, became a missionary

May Hall. 

The last building completed on 
campus in the 19th Century was 
May Hall. The building was named 
in honor of Abby May. the first 
woman visitor and lecturer to 
Framingham. May Hall was com- 
pleted in 1889 during the fiftieth 
anniversary of the school and 
today it remains an academic hall 
where History. English, Politics, 
and Art are taught. In 1935 May 
Hall partially burned. The building 
caught fire in the south wing and 
though the building was badly dam- 
aged the portraits of the principals 
of the school and the records of the 
Normal school were saved. Di- 
saster struck May Hall again in 
1938 when a hurricane knocked off 
the turrets which once were a fix- 
ture of the roof. The hurricane 
caused the roof of May Hall to be 
remodeled, without its turrets. 

in the Ottoman Empire in Europe where she was to 
work with the Christian minorities of that country. 
Theodora Wall, 1883, went to Japan where she also 
worked as a missionary during the rapid modernization 
of that country. 

Other graduates of Framingham include Clara Hap- 
good Nash of the class of 1872 who was New En- 
gland's first female lawyer. Other graduates went on to 
establish themselves as authors, teachers and some of 
the first female professors at many colleges across the 
country. Three women were responsible for the es- 
tablishment of the Normal Schools in Argentina and 
today they are honored with statues. Jennie Howard, 
class of 1 866; Edith Howe, class of 1 867; and Elizabeth 
Coolidge, clqss of 1 864 were instrumental in the early 
years of the schools created at Corrientes and at 

Certainly the most prominent graduate at Framing- 

ham State College during the past twenty years has 
been Christa Corrigan McAuliffe whose death in the 
1985 NASA space shuttle accident was witnessed by 
the whole nation. Christa was a graduate in 1970 and 
during her years as a teacher in Concord, New Hamp- 
shire, she was to exemplify the best qualities which can 
be held by any Framingham graduate. After her being 
chosen by the NASA program to be the first teacher in 
space McAuliffe hoped to teach class from the shuttle 
to schools across the country. Her death was a terrible 
loss but her example of excellence remains as an inspi- 
ration for all Framingham graduates.

Framingham State College has hosted many fam- 
ous visitors during its one hundred and fifty year his- 
tory. The school has seen the wisdom to invite impor- 
tant men and women from various fields to speak at the 
campus and to bring the current issues of our society 
into focus for the entire campus community. Lectures 
have been given on topics as varied as the fine arts, 
Biology, Philosophy, and on topics as obscure as 
southern dueling and as pressing as the human gene 
code. In recent years Framingham has hosted lectures 
by such writers as Maya Angelou, Toni Morrison and 
Allen Ginsburg. In the realm of politics the school has 
been a meeting place for political thought ranging 
from anchor woman Maria Shriver to Massachusetts 
Governor Michael Dukakis. Framingham has received 
information from the men and women who have 
played so vital a part in our government (Governors, 
presidential advisors, and political visionaries). The 
school remains committed to inviting to Framingham 
more speakers through the Arts and Humanities Com- 
mittee which is principally responsible for inviting each 
year's lecturers. The benefits of guest speakers will 
continue to give to Framingham students the ability to 
listen and to question men and women whose voices 
have made a difference in the world forum.

Ljo-Curricular Challenges 

Co-curricular activities have had a long history 
of providing a personal challenge to the student, 
in the form of working with others towards a 
common interest. Initially, Clubs on campus were 
few, but currently there are close to fifty student- 
run organizations. These include the school pub- 
lications and WDJM, the Student Government 
Association, the Student Gnion Activities Board, 
and smaller clubs reflecting diverse aspects of in- 
terest from International Awareness to the Film 
Society. Alongside these clubs are the academic 
clubs which have been extremely active in further- 
ing one's knowledge outside of the classroom. 

The earliest clubs were the Music Club and the 
Home Economics Club. The Music Club has 
played a prominent part in college life of the col- 
lege since late in the 19th century. In the past the 
Music Club has had several sections including a 
concert choir and a chapel choir and enjoying its 
highest popularity in the seventies. Currently, the 
club gives concerts on the Village Green at a 
nearby nursing home at Christmas time and bi- 

annual performances for the school in Dwight 
Auditorium. The club has had only three advisors, 
the director today being Mr. James Savas. It is be- 
cause of his dedication that students have dis- 
covered a love for music and an appreciation of 
its power. 

The Home Economics Club was unofficially 
founded in 1910 by students who desired to 
pursue their field outside of the classroom. In 
1924 the organization became affiliated with the 
national organization and was officially re- 
cognized by the school in January 1929, the club 
was dedicated to Louisa B. Nicholass for her out- 
standing performance as a professor at the 

Other organizations have included the 
A'Kempis club a Catholic organization which 
sought to promote good works around the com- 
munity. Established early in this century the 
Y.W.CA., like the other religious organizations, 
sought to bring social awareness and caring to 
this community. These early organizations were

to be the forerunners of the many co-curricular 
activities available today. 

The present Student Government Association 
did not have its present organization until 1976. 
Then President James Steele and Vice President 
Donna Bourassa drafted the initial constitution 
which is still the core of today's SGA constitution. 
The original meeting room of the organization 
was Hemenway 309 but moved with the comple- 
tion of the D. Justin McCarthy College Center 
SGA moved into its present suite. Student Gov- 
ernment itself consists of the Student Senate, 
which is headed by the SGA president: the stu- 
dent judicial board, and a variety of standing com- 
mittees which have been responsible for monitor- 

ing important goings-on around campus. These 
committees tackle problems from the parking 
situation, which has remained a chronic problem 
since the 1 960's, to the annual blood mobile drive 
held in the forum. The Student Government 
Association remains the key organization on 
campus and the voice of the students while also 
encouraging the growth of the organizations 
which it governs. 

The Student (Jnion Activities Board is the 
primary group on campus for the planning of so- 
cial events on campus. The Sandbox weekends, 
the Five and Dime events in the pub, and the day- 
time entertainment planned for the commuter 
cafeteria are just a few of the responsibilities of 
SCJAB members. One of the largest clubs on 
campus, SC1AB has played an important role on 
campus, when it first occupied its present office 
adjacent to the Student Activities office in 1 976. 
This organization is divided into many standing 
committees which help to make the social life at 
Framingham State College enjoyable and mem- 

The school radio station, WDJM, offers its 
members the chance to have on-air time and to 
experience hands-on training in media com- 
munications. Always individualistic the radio sta- 
tion plays a variety of music styles and offers an 
alternative to more commercial radio stations. 

Since the turn of the century student pub- 
lications have found an important part in the 
school's history. These publications have best re- 
flected the ideas and humor of the college. The 
first document was a hand produced and circu- 
lated newsletter called The Normal Experiment. 

The Senior Quill was the first yearbook and pre- 
ceeded the Dial which was begun in 1915. The 
Senior Quill produced several volumes which 
concentrated on the senior class of each year. 
The Dial eventually supplemented the Quill by in- 
cluding the entire campus. The Dial embodies the 
history of the school through its volumes. The 
production of each year's Dial is a long process 
which requires extensive layout and detailed copy

school publications, the Gateposts at times has 
been controversial and has played an important 
part in school elections as well as regularly in-

The Gatepost has an uninterrupted history since

for its impressive layout and quality of articles. 

In 1 965, the first literary magazine was founded 
under the name of Nexus. This name was first 
changed to Reflections, and then to ONYX in 
1966. The ONYX has three boards with three

other student literature, and the third is respon-

In 1976, the first issue of the Mahgnimarf Lam- 

poon was published by seniors John Ferren and 
Joe Sano. Though inconsistently published since 
then, the Magnimarf has entertained students 
through parodies and satires and with cutting ob- 
servations of life on campus. The Magnimarf has 
always been controversial and every issue chal- 
lenges the time with humor. 

The Alumni Association produces a regular 
newsletter and has done so since 1964. This pub- 
lication keeps Framingham alumni informed of 
events at the campus and on political issues 
which could effect the school. Long after the 
students leave Framingham they can retain a link 
to their college. 

The Black & Gold Service Committee serves to 
welcome incoming students to the college during 
orientation as well as giving tours of the school to 
visitors. Academically orientation clubs include; 
the English club, the Art Activitists, the French 
club, the History club, the Philosophy club, Active 
Sociologists, and the Spanish club as well as the 
Math Computer Science club, Psychology club 
and Graphics club. These organizations offer 
students experiences related to their majors and 
provide them with additional instruction through 
speakers and field trips as well as a social setting. 
One club recently revived was founded in 1 975 is 
the Economics club. Today it is known as the 
Economics/Business club and sponsors guest 
lectures who have spoken on trade relations and 
the AFL-CIO. This organization is rapidly gaining 
student interest and increasing in membership. 

The Rugby Club has competed against many 
universities throughout Massachusetts and has 
been active in raising money through their "rent- 
a-rugger" day. This organization, though sports 
related, is funded through SGA. They have seen 
many successful seasons and have participated 
in various competitions, including a conference in 
the Bahamas in March of 1989. 

Religious organizations on campus include 
Hillel and the Christian Fellowship which have 
been active in bringing about an awareness of dif- 
ferent religions and providing for the needs of 
students on campus. Hillel was founded in the 
1950's. The Christian Fellowship is the successor 
to the three organizations which were founded 
earlier in the century for Protestants and Cath-

The newest club on campus, FSC's Gays and 
Friends, has sought to bring about an under- 
standing of homosexuality and to present impor- 
tant information about issues effecting the gay 
community. The club has co-sponsored the 
Health Fair and also sponsored lecturers who 
have spoken on the difficulties of being homo- 
sexual in today's society and the dangers AIDS 
presents to every student at FSC. 

The Residence Hall Association does not fall 
under the Student Government Association but 
helps to promote a positive atmosphere in the in- 
dividual residence halls on campus. The Resi- 
dence Hall Council has been a meeting place for 
resident students to discuss concerns and plan 
social activities to improve the quality of life at 

Sports on campus have provided a similar 
means of enjoying out-of-classroom time. The 
football, basketball, hockey and baseball teams 
have all had successful season and were founded 
after the admission of men to the college in 1964. 
Women's athletics include volleyball and softball, 
as well as an equestrian team. These teams also 
have had many successful seasons and have 
competed against public and private schools 
throughout New England. 

It is this combination of activities that over the 
years have helped to round out the education of 
many men and women who have been a part of 
the college community. It is through co- 
curriculars that the student can expand their abili- 
ties outside of the classroom and find additional 
actions or subjects in which they have concern 
and interest.

(celebrating 150 Years of 


The 1988-89 academic year was given extra meaning and enjoyment as the 
school looked to represent and celebrate its past history. These events were 
spaced throughout the year. Framingham chose to celebrate by telling all, present 
and past people involved with them, the accomplishments of the institution. The 
Ellen Hyde Discussion Group, originated in 1 964, put on a pageant telling the story 
of five influential women of the past. Also seen in the semester was the Sesqui- 
centennial Ball and a lecture given by Teacher of the Year, Terry Wikes. To round 
out the year, the school hosted an Alumni Weekend, which included reunions for 
many different classes, a golf tournament, a harbor cruise and ceremonies rec- 
ognizing the anniversary. During this ceremony, the college received a letter from 
President George Bush recognizing its achievements.

1 o the Future . . . 

The graduating class of 1 989 represents an impor- 
tant landmark in the history of Framingham State Col- 
lege. The members of the Sesquicentennial Class are 
living proof of the vibrant tradition of the excellence that 
Framingham State has personified in the past and will 
continue to embrace in the future. The innumerable 
contributions, to both the College and the world, to 
meet the tradition of excellence are applauded and we 
look forward to future contributions you can make as 
an alumni of this fine institution. 

When we began our Freshman year the College had 
just been through some dramatic changes. Dr. Weller 
was our president, the campus was completely dry as 
the Pub was closed and our residence halls were re- 
covering from over a year of fire alarms and extreme 
damage. Over time, these changes were accepted if 
not entirely universally agreed with in theory. Dr. Weller 
became involved and was accepted into the campus 
community wholeheartedly. In time, the Pub was re- 
opened and the fire alarms began to come under con- 

These changes, which struck the core of Framing- 
ham State College at the time, were made possible by 
an intrinsic characteristic dominant in all Framingham 
students, staff and faculty. This characteristic is stead- 
fast, solid pride in our institution. From the students 
and faculty to the staff and administration, Framing- 
ham has the capability of pulling together and utilizing 
all resources to the fullest in order to preserve the insti- 
tution as a whole. We have successfully preserved a 

long history of academic excellence and recently have 
begin a legacy of excellence in our many co-curricular 
activities as well. 

Particularly in the past four years there have been 
some situations that were potential roadblocks to fulfill- 
ing our high standards. The budgetary cuts on both the 
local, state and federal levels, budgetary reversion 
which took money from our pockets even as we were 
reaching for it, and ultimately, inadequate budget allot- 
ments to continue running an institution of our caliber 
would be enough to try even the most hardy soul. It did 
inevitably affect our morale as a student body if nothing 
else but even this could not adversely affect the school 
as a whole. Our pride and our strong backbone have 
pulled us through and expanded our reputation so that 
applications for admissions have skyrocketed. This 
year showed a record 5,000 applications for 1,000 
class spots. 

Fighting throughout the state's financial difficulties 
became a priority for many of us in the past. Driven by 
the knowledge and understanding for a need for 
affordable quality higher education, Framingham 
students formed statewide coalition for the purpose of 
lobbying the State for our rights. The coalition, called 
S.O.G.T.H.: Students Opposed to Unfair Tuition Hikes, 
won a victory at the State House. While this victory was 
not unconditional, Framingham students led the way 
to lower the proposed increase and keep education 
affordable for a while to come. 

While the institution fought for continued state sup- 

30 Sesquicentennial 

port, many of the students in particular indulged in a 
plethora of excellent co-curricula activities. Our Men's 
and Women's basketball teams have posted cham- 
pionship seasons in our tenure here and our Rugby 
Club Team has won tournaments across New England 
and has traveled as far as Florida and the Bahamas to 
compete. The individual classes have become increas- 
ingly involved in the entire community with successful 
Investiture speakers and the perennial Ram Aid contest 
inaugurated by the Class of 1988 and proudly con- 
tinued. The Student Union Activities Board (SC1AB) has 
presented quality activities every week and has dis- 
tinguished itself in most recent years with awards from 
the National Association of Campus Activities. Finally, 
the Student Government Association (SGA) master- 

fully gained the respect and admiration of the college 
community with its leadership in times of crisis. SGA 
also assisted in the formation of several new clubs and 
completely revamped the constitutions of the organiz- 
ation already existing. 

Framingham State College has had a diverse his- 
tory. Her legacy, particularly in your stay here, has been 
varied. From diversity we rose to promote excellence. 
Pride in our institution helped us through the trying 
times and raised us to amazing highs in the good 
times. The Class of 1 989 are to be commended for the 
role they have played in our history. The page is blank 
for the next chapter in Framingham's history. Won't it 
be interesting to see what the Class of 2039, the Bi- 
centennial Class, has to offer?

last, Present, Future 


This special year is a particularly 
appropriate time to reinstate the 
tradition of a dedication. The "past, 
present, and future students, faculty 
and administrators" was chosen be- 
cause it was too difficult to focus on 
any one person over 1 50 years of in- 
tricate history. Those pictured on 
these pages are a representative 
sample of people from our past, 
present and potential future. It has 
been said that reward of a job is what 
you put into it — the personal sat- 
isfaction, doing what you desire — is 
the reward, not the money or the 
recognition, but the self gratitude; 
so this edition is dedicated to all 
those — past — present — future — 
people who desire the personal re- 

ward of extending the extra step! 

From the past we can recognize 
the founder of the school, Cyrus 
Peirce, as an example of someone 
willing to take the risks involved in 
improving education by devoting 
not only his time and energy, but 
also his money to build an institu- 
tion worth attention and recogni- 

Every day students are made 
aware of the accomplishments of 
President D. Justin McCarthy. Some 
of his accomplishments include the 
construction of 8 buildings, an in- 
crease in enrollment and the ac- 
ceptance of males, and accredita- 
tion of academic programs. 

There are of course many stu- 

dents who have also contributed to 
the school's growth and recogni- 
tion. One of the major contributors 
to campus life was Paul T. Murphy, 
who expanded and generated stu- 
dent activities and motivated school 
spirit. This is only one example of 
many people who were proud of 
their affiliation with Framingham 
State College. 

As we look to tomorrow, there is 
uncertainty as to who will be the 
major influence in shaping the 
school's future, but that will become 
apparent when the accomplish- 
ments occur.

The evening's talent was MC'ed by Com- 
edian Billy Martin and featured student 
music from several bands including: Barley

Gurd, and Shatter'd. The music ranged 
from light pop to blues to rock and roll. Fri- 
day night, after the bands, the Residence 
Hall Association held a dance to continue 
the festivities of the weekend. The theme of 
this year's Sandbox was further extended 
on Saturday night, when the snack bar was 
converted to a speakeasy featuring Boston 
band New Man. The campus danced the 
night away out of the Jazz Age and back 
into the eighties.

Oeniors Celebrate Together 

On Sunday October 23rd, the class 
of 1 989 gathered to continue the tradi- 
tion of Senior Investiture. The third 
Sunday in October is traditionally the 
first time the graduating class of F.S.C. 
officially wears their caps and gowns. 

The ceremony opened with a bene- 
diction from Father John Culloty 
blessing the students and furthermore 
humorously praying that they all get 
jobs to pay their parents back. Pres- 
ident Weller then introduced Dr. Dana 
Jost, speaking to the graduates as 
Senior Faculty Member. His speech re- 
counted many years of progress and 
change in Framingham State com- 
munity both in the campus and the 
education process in his 36 years. 

Class President Steve Goldman 
posed the question to find the meaning 
of Investiture by wondering what the 
graduates had gotten out of the college 
and what kind of people they have be- 
come in their years at school. In clos- 
ing, he recognized the accomplish- 
ments and contributions of Class Vice 
President, Jayne Costello, to the class 
of 1989. In honor of these, Goldman 
gave his position in the Sesquicenten- 
nial flag raising ceremony to her. 

President Paul Weller then intro- 
duced Higher Education Chancellor, 
Frankly Jenifer. He spoke on the 
changes and challenges in education 
and careers in the past thirty years. He 
urged the students to meet and over- 
come the obstacles put before them in 
order to take part in an expanding 
society in which a college education is 
necessary. The students were urged to 
discover the future and use it to their 
advantage to become the best they

The Ram's Den Pub was jam- 
packed this year with the appearan- 
ces of guests such as Gordie Milne, 
Jim Plunkett, Oldies 103 and The 
Cape Cod Traveling All-Stars. These 
guests along with disc jockeys and 
dances made the pub the place to

offered a variety of music and plenty 
of chances for their audiences to

edge of television theme songs

On December 9th, FSC's College 
Center Forum was transformed into a 
magical winter's evening by the Class 
of 1 990 for the annual winter dance — 
"The Snowflake Swirl." A tunnel, 
streamers, snowflakes, stars, murals, 
balloons and lights made the room 
bright and festive for the evening's 
buffet and dance. Music was provided 
by the disc jockeys Dave Thompson 
and Heidi Scribner and featured a 
guest appearance by WZOCI's Karen 
Blake and Tim Fox. Even though the 
turnout was small, the students had a 
fantastic time dining and dancing 
throughout the winter night. 

Has Dan fallen to the ground in awe of the fantastic music or is this just interpretive dancing? 

Melissa Peirce, Dial staff member, really knows how to get down and

Lruests on Campus H 

The campus during the 88-89 year was 
host to a combination of guests. The guests 
gave the students the opportunity to learn, 
question, enjoy and laugh. Some of the 
featured visitors included Ted Kennedy Jr. 
speaking on independence and civil rights 
for the disabled; Mayor Andrew Young of 
Atlanta; Poet Nikki Giovanni; and filmmaker 
Henry Hampton, who spoke on the past, 
present, and future of blacks in society; and 
Allen Ginsberg, a poet, songwriter, and po- 
litical activist who treated the audience with 
his opinions about the world around us. 
Each of these guests gave us insight into 
the world outside campus. 

On the more informal end, we were also 
hosts to many comedians and musical 
guests that helped the student body fill their 
empty time. The bands Face to Face and 
New Man were the bands at two different 
dances. Meatloaf and Jon Butcher were the 
headliners at Sandbox. The campus fea- 
tured many different styles when Karen 
Blake and Tim Fox from WZOG came to 
campus and the acapella group Regency 
and a gospel choir filled out the roster of 
musical guests. In addition to the many 
local comedians who performed at our Five 
and Dime, we also had Robert Klein per- 
form on Homecoming and the Comedy 
Commandos brought their humor to 
campus this fall. 

The group of guests added both an edu- 
cational outlet as well as a place to use free 
time that students have to spend, therefore 
bettering the student and increasing the 
abilities and opportunities at Framingham 
State College.

±L lephants, Camels and Sand 

A fantastic event matched by no 
recent years, Spring Sandbox XXVII 
packed one spring weekend so full 
of events, it brought a new dimen- 
sion to Framingham. This semes- 
ter's theme, "Arabian Mights" 
brought a taste of a different culture 
by having a camel and an elephant 
on campus for rides. Aside from the 
animals there was plenty for stu- 
dents to do. Many clubs offered 
games of skill for prizes. You could 
also make a recording of yourself in 
the Star Trax booth, have your cari- 
cature done, and analyze your hand- 
writing. At 4 pm, the campus talent 
kicked off their show, running into 
the night, offering a variety of music. 
As that came to a close SC1AB and 
the Residence Hall Association kept 
everybody moving, sponsoring a 
beach party dance until late into the 

While the next day dawned sunny 
but bitter cold, the students found 
that the events of the previous day 
weren't over. Included in the day was 
a Rugby game against Bridgewater 
State (a 13 to 4 loss), a tug of war, 
and because of the amount of on 
campus talent, more student bands. 

The Crowd was even given a chance to make a mess. Welcome to the tie-dying

The tug of war, an addition to the 
activities, was staged to name the 
road that runs between Towers and 
Larned. Residents from each dorm 
represented either side of the battle. 
The teams squared off twice with 
Larned winning both times. The 
winner got the right to name the 
road but as the 1989 Dial goes to 
press, verification of a name was not 
confirmed. Saturday continued with 
a Casino Night sponsored by the 
Rugby Club where everyone got the 
chance to try their luck and win 
prizes. Students found renewed life 
in an old tradition and look forward 
to the celebrations to come.

with a hard rocking set featuring 
songs such as "Wishes." As the set 
came to a close excitement rose as 
the crowd prepared for Meatloaf. 
The concert featured the hits from 
his "Bat Out Of Hell" album. In the 
years since the release of that album 
Meatloaf has become a cult figure 
with the classics, "Two out of Three 
Ain't Bad," "Bat Out of Hell," and 
"Paradise By The Dashboard 
Light." Everyone rocked to the con- 
cert. It is on this note that the 
Sandbox weekend was brought to 
an appropriate end.

The Oxford Union Debating team came to Framingham State to 
challenge us to an intellectual discussion. This takes on an inter- 
esting twist because the method of debate allows the use of any 
persuasive measure. Each team is, a mixture of people from both 
schools who argue for and against the argument proposed. This 
year the question posed for consideration was "Is Capitalism Ruin- 
ing America?" The team arguing for the 
position based their arguments on the dic- 
tionary definition of capitalism; private 
ownership and control, not controlled by 
state; and equating this to mean that all 
capitalists are greedy and only out for 
themselves. The team against proposed 
that this ownership wasn't greed, but ambi- 
tion to succeed. Capitalists are taught to be 
ambitious and get what they want. 

The overall decision is put to the audi- 
ence to determine how the arguments 
fared whether the proposition is true or 
false. The audience decided by one vote 
that capitalism is ruining America. Close 
margins such as this are what makes one 
recognize the fine art of persuasion.

The Athletic pro- 
gram at 'Jramingham State works to 
support the time honored tradition of competi- 
tion: competing, striving consciously or unconsciously for 
an objective (apositum, profit, or prize). 'Worthing toward this 
' goat challenges the student both physically and mentally to 

improve himself and to contribute to an overall team 
effort. The prize that is received may be a winning 
season, recognition from your school, and/or peers 
an award from your conference, or simply the 
honor and pride of being part of a team. 
Whether or not you score the winning point, 
the contribution made is as valuable when providing the neec 
morale and support. "By representing the student body against neighboring 
colleges and universities, each member gains the satisfaction of contributing 
to a community and increasing the esteem of the college and oneself. It is 
the challenge of future seasons to overcome the present obstacles of 
budget cuts and the unforseen obstacles of injuries which make the A 
team effort that much more important. The striving for the 
unity between athletes to make up a team achieves the 
ultimate goal of sportsmanship and competi-

tough competition and finished the 
season with an overall record of 3- 
13-1. Scoring was led by Co-Captain 
Scott Schofield who scored 8 goals 

and made 2 assists. The team spent 
the better part of this year rebuilding 
and adjusting to the arrival of many 
new team members. They spent a 
great deal of time learning to work 
together to achieve their goal, a 

winning season. The team scored 
substantial wins over Anna Maria

season should pay off with a suc- 
cessful season next year.

ootball Rises to Meet the Challenge 

The Football team showed that 
they had great inner strength during 
the 1988 season. They came 
through with confident wins against 
tough competitors. They showed 
their great spirit as they rallied be- 
hind the support of the school, 
winning the Homecoming game 
against S.M.CI. and following up with 
a strong victory the next week 
against Nichols College. Despite 
their overall record of 2 and 7, there 
were many great individual efforts. 
Among the standouts were Dennis 
Farr (Individual scoring); Frank Per- 

fetuo (Rushing); and Kevin Piatt 
(Passing). The Rams are looking 
forward to a successful season 
ahead as many of the underclass- 
men will be returning. 

Members of the team were rewarded 
for their efforts. The highlights of the 
season was the conferring of Defen- 
sive End Bob McCuin and Wide Re- 
ceiver Dennis Tarr to the New En- 
gland Football conference second 
team. Dennis Tarr leading punt re- 
turner in N.CAA. Division III, was 
also named to the Pizza Hut Football 
Team as a kick returner. 

It will be a rebuilding season, as 
the seniors Kevin Piatt, Gary 
Puppolo, Eric Walker, Chris John- 
son, and Dave Valinote have come 
to the end of their college career. 
Next season the team will have to re- 
build their motivating forces and 
face the new challenges. The 
achievements of these seniors will

out of the season with an overall record of 
6-12-1, but more importantly members of 
the team received recognition from their 
conference. Players receiving honors 
where Brenda Braskett, Robin Pare and 
Tracy McHugh. Brackett and Pare were 
named to the MASCAC All Conference 
team, while McHugh received honorable 

mention. Despite the overall losing record, 
the determination of the team was converted 
into positive through winning efforts 
against Fitchburg State, Wheelock College, 
and Anna Maria College to close the season 
on a positive note. The accomplishments 
of this team met the challenge not of 
whether the team won overall, but whether 
they improved themselves and were proud 
in their effort. Next year's squad will achieve 

the same heights and bring new goals to a 
new team. They will be able to convert their 
enthusiasm into more awards and wins for 
their team. The majority of this year's team 
was freshmen which insures future seasons 
of growth improvement and success.

O tarting Fresh on the Ice 

The Ice Hockey team was once 
again on the rebuilding track this 
winter. The team finished fourth in 
the conference under first year 
coach Timothy Friday. Their overall 
record was 5-19-1, and although 
their overall record was not a win- 
ning season the top scorers on the 

team showed great strength. It is this 
strength which they contributed to 
the overall makeup of the team. 

The team's top scorers were Cap- 
tain Charlie Orato, John Greaney 
and Dave Mullahy. As the skaters 
look toward the future they find with 
the experience of their returning 

veterans along with the talent of in- 
coming freshmen, next year's team 
will be assured of a winning effort. 
Framingham State College Hockey 
will grow and improve their ability to 
work together for the ultimate goal.

came up just short of a win. Al-

Jxeaching for the Milestones 

This season the individual mile- 
stones reached by members of the 
team served as an emotionally up- 
lifting bonus to a team competing 
for a winning season. Despite their 
efforts, the women lost a number of 
j games in the second half of their 
< season. Their overall record was 8- 

17. The contributions of a strong 
and determined team and the speed 
of Lisa Halloran, who led the team 
with 101 steals motivated the Lady 
Rams to look toward each game as 
a new challenge. The team was also 
rewarded with the scoring achieve- 
ments of their captains. Halloran, a 

5 '6" guard reached an individual 
total scoring record of 2000 career 
points. Zapustas, a 6'1" center 
reached 1 000 career points. All the 
members of this team should be 
proud of their effort and look to the 
future and become a winning force.

Looking Past the Barriers 

The 1 989 Women's Softball team 
stumbled this spring in their attempt 
to have a winning season. Combin- 
ing the individual talents of a team 
into a winning effort proved to be a 
difficult task. The team opened the 
season with six straight losses. 
While not able to provide momen- 

tum to insure a win, they did 
sharpen their own skills enough to 
win four of the following six games. 
The scores of the games ranged 
from one extreme to another with 
the Rams beating their opponents 
by a 10 run margin in the first game 
of the doubleheader, while losing 

the second game by the same mar- 
gin in their conference games 
against North Adams State. Next 
season the team hopes to con- 
centrate their power to carry them to 
a winning season.

\J Id and New Talents Combine to Win 

F.S.C. Baseball worked together 
this spring to create an interesting 
and successful season. The season 
began with a tournament in Tampa, 
Florida and closed with an ECAC 
Quarterfinal at Amherst College. 
The team started out on a good 

note, winning in Florida four of their 
five contests by definitive margins. 
Their only loss was a 1 4- 1 1 decision 
for Bridgewater State. 

Upon their return to Framing- 
ham, they showed that their talents 
were the product of an honest team 

effort, losing only one of their next 
eight games. The team's efforts 
took F.S.C. all the way to the Confer- 
ence Quarterfinals. Next year's team 
will be a strong contender once 
again to succeed as in previous

lolicy Making in Action 

Framingham State's Student 
Government Association in the 
1988-1989 academic year has 
worked to be the voice of the stu- 
dent concerning the changes in the 
college community and to find out 
what the students want and need in 
a learning establishment. S.G.A. has 
worked hard to fight the impending 
budget cuts imposed by the state. 
They sponsored a trip to The State 
House to protest the budget cuts in 
higher education in Massachusetts. 
They also included the college com- 
munity in sponsoring a phone drive 
to inform state representatives 
about our concern toward cuts fac- 
ing education and attempting to 
raise money to help the budget. 
Through these and other events de- 
signed to help all the people con- 

nected with the college (blood 
drives, Midnight Madness and work- 
ing with the college to help to cel- 
ebrate the sesquicentennial anni- 
versary of the college), S.G.A. has 
been a strong and visible organiza- 
tion on campus concerned with the 
rights of the student. 

As the 1989 academic year 
comes to a close, the tenure of Heidi 
Gustafson as Student Government 
President also ends. Heidi has suc- 
ceeded in bringing Student Govern- 
ment to new heights and encour- 
aged the entire college community 
to be more politically and socially 
aware of campus as well as world 
events. Congratulations Heidi on a 
job well done; you and your contri- 
butions will be missed.

Hilltop Players presented Woody Allen's 
"Play it Again Sam" this fall. The play 
offered an amusing look at relationships 
through the eyes of Allen Felix (Bart 
Orban). Allen, a recent entrant on the di- 
vorce scene, turns to his idol Humphrey 
Bogart for advice about women. This ad- 
vice kept the audience laughing through- 
out the show. The combination between 
Allen's fantasy relationship with Bogart and 
his everyday relationship with his best 
friend Dick and Dick's wife, Christie, serve 
as interesting compliment to his attempts 
on the dating scene. Through the course of 
the play, Linda, whose husband would 
rather make business deals than spend 
time with her, realizes that she has fallen in 
love with Allen. The two of them discover 
that they have found in each other what 
they have lacked or tried to find in other re- 

Hilltop Players should be complimented 
on their talented look into the world of the 
single person. Their performances and tech- 
nical support show that they are a gifted 
group of people determined to give the 
audience their best no matter what they do.

The Dial Yearbook is an organization on campus that 
introduces the student body to both the artistic and busi- 
ness elements of putting together an annual publication. 
During the course of the year, the staff develops a theme 
through which we photograph the campus, relay the hap- 
penings on campus in the copy, and lay out the pages 
representing the events. It is through this knowledge that 
we expand our abilities and work together as a team to 
obtain the final project. 

In order to put all of these parts we must learn the busi- 
ness side of a publication, dealing with representatives 
from all the organizations used to get the book in final 

The process of producing this volume is very time con- 
suming and does not end with the end of spring finals. 
Those determined to finish a project have spent many 
hours brainstorming and creating for the Dial Yearbook. 

This yearbook is the end result and is something that 
the staff and the school can take pride in.

shorter hours. All of these combine to seriously damage the 
education of tomorrow s youth. The faculty and adminis tra-. 
tion must now pull together to counteract these 
negative elements and produce a positive and 
fulfilling atmosphere here at 

f\Uied Sciences 

The Allied Sciences are represen- 
ted by the Biology, Chemistry and 
Food Sciences, Physics and Nurs- 
ing departments at Framingham 
State. These departments concen- 
trate on the elements of pure sci- 
ence: those who depend on scien- 
tific fact in explaining how nature 
has created and affected the world 
around us and how, we in turn, use 
what we learn from these sciences 

to help ourselves in everyday life. 

While each science is a very ex- 
tensive and complicated subject the 
basic elements help us to function 
in everyday life. They teach us how 
to care for our families and work 
with people in our careers. It is 
through these sciences people are 
cared for outside of their homes as 
they are in schools and workplaces 
making sure they are healed if they 

are ill (Nursing) or that people are 
taught why the world functions and 
what affect what we use has on our 
health and our lives (Physics and 
Food Science). As we learn we im- 
prove the overall outlook of our lives 
making us more knowledgeable 
and able to succeed and reach new

Influences of Society 

The departments of computer 
Science, Math and Home Econom- 
ics instruct the students on many of 
the basic elements that can help the 
people give to the society. The 
knowledge of math and computers 
can help in everyday tasks such as in 
money management, or be an 

important part of a project that 
could have a larger meaning to all 
society. Programs in the Home 
Economic Department prepare the 
student for positions in human ser- 
vices, consumer information, edu- 
cation, fashion merchandising or 
design, and many other careers val- 

uable to the community. Each is 
contributing to society, be it in a very

W or Id and Our Past 

As students move toward the future 
we realize that all we experience hap- 
pens because of what is around us and 
what has happened before us. What we 
know of the world around us forces us 
to discover more about the places we 
have not experienced. What the gener- 

ations before us have done to improve 
our rights, insure our freedom and in- 
crease our power as a nation motivates 
us as a new generation to meet and 
surpass the challenges of the past, 
reaching the goals of a society on the 
verge of a new century. It is for these 

challenges that we look at the world 
and its geography and its history. The 
departments at Framingham work to 
ensure that we will learn from the mis- 
takes and successes of the world and 
carry that knowledge into our future

Inside the Mind 

The connection of the mind the body 
and the soul can be seen in the sci- 
ences of the mind. Psychology and 
Philosophy open the world of the mind. 
We discover how and why we think. We 
learn how the decisions in our life affect 
our body and what, in the structure of 
the mind, controls the way we think. We 

come to decisions because of the in- 
ternal desires and needs of our mind. 
Once we are introduced to the tech- 
nical elements, the parts and how they 
function, in the world of psychology; we 
can move further into the soul. When 
we trace the thought process and 
come to a decision, there is a connec- 

tion between our emotions and our 
body chemistry. Philosophy examines 
the questions of right and wrong and 
the meaning and definition of knowl- 
edge and truth and through these def- 
initions we exercise our mind, achiev- 
ing a skill in which we attain clear and 
reasonable thought.

ducation through Communication 

The written and the spoken lan- 
guage are the elements that give 
society all around the world the 
ability to communicate and express 
ideas together in business and 
everyday life. The elements of lan- 
guage, either domestic or foreign, 
allow us to broaden our abilities and 
expand our knowledge into cultures 
where we do not live. The better we 
can understand life, as seen in what 

was expressed before us can ex- 
pand our instruction to future gen- 
erations and educate them about 
the art of communicating and pre- 
senting literature and themselves in 
the best possible light. 

The way that one communicates 
meaning is not always straight for- 
ward, it is hidden in the way one 
speaks or in the symbolism of writ- 
ing. It is the goal of a learning atmo- 

sphere to show the student how to 
correctly relay meaning while using 
talents of speech: presentation or in- 
flection or talents of the written 
work, such as symbolism or diction. 
These talents are how the student 
is taught to integrate these skills into 
the world around them to become a 
strong communicator and educated

May 21,1983, 

graduation (Day, the culmination of many 
years of hard tabor. Jot some, the. transition in -per- 
sonality between our freshman and senior year serves to be 
as valuable as the tepctboof^education received, for others, 
the difference is (ess emphasized, yet the years spent in 
college still provide an intregat part of moving into 
adulthood. The new found freedom of being at 
college is sometimes a difficult challenge to over- 
come, but ultimately the responsibdity of aca- 
demics is discovered. Through the demand- 
ing preparation for classes, papers, and 
presentations there have been a range of emotions from the frustration ofnot\ 
finding information pertinent to one 's project and the disappointment of not 
getting the room you wanted in room tottery. The encouragement received j 
comes from the excitement of finding out that your 8:30 or 2:30 class 
has been cancelled and the happiness of earning an "JA. "you worked, 
so hard on (be it 2 hours or 2 months). These feelings have helped 
the student to lookj.o future plans with the knowledge of A 
previous setbacks accomplishments, ande?q>eri- 
ences that will prove valuable in 
everyday situations. 



As Seniors move along through their final year at 
Framingham State, there are ceremonies that bring 
them toward that final goal, graduation. At F.S.C., the 
first of these ceremonies is Senior Investiture. On the 
third Sunday in October, the seniors get their first 
chance to don their caps and gowns as future gradu- 
ates, and look back on their accomplishments. 

Class President Steve Goldman posed the ques- 
tions of why they were here, what they had achieved, 
and what they were bringing out of their years at 
Framingham State College. While Goldman looked 
back only at the past four years, Senior Faculty 
Member Dana Jost and Keynote Speaker, Chancellor 
of Higher Education, Dr. Franklyn Jenifer, looked back 
over many years and recounted the changes that have 
taken place to move our society to become more in- 
terested in improving the mind and the body. When 
looking back, Jenifer challenged the graduates to 
reach for new goals and bring the world, to which they 
belong, into a new future with positive changes for all 

With this first recognition of their impending gradu- 
ation, the students moved on through the year's re- 
sponsibilities and classes. As May 21 approached, the 
seniors spent the previous week celebrating. The last 
evening before Graduation Day, a second formality 
marked their time at F.S.C., the Baccalaureate Cer- 
emony. It is during this ceremony that the students, 
along with members of the faculty and staff, recognize 
the good times: the fun, friends, and their accumula- 
ted knowledge. 

The keynote speaker at this year's Baccalaureate, 
Michael Miller, Class of 1989 Co-Advisor, urged the 
seniors to be proud of themselves and the education 
they received. He recognized that hard work and 
showed them that it was their privilege to be proud, 
and that an education is something to hide behind. 

With good wishes for the future, the Class of 1 989 
stepped out into the world ready to face graduation 
and anything else that they may encounter.

Every year the senior class stages 
a pub night the same number of 
days away from graduation as the 
year they are graduating. Senior 
Countdown '89 was the first op- 
portunity for the Class of 1 989 to get 
together with their friends and class- 
mates for an official celebration of 
graduation. The senior class and 
their friends came to the pub for a 
musical variety show with performer 
Gordie Milne. Some problems were 
encountered because on this partic- 
ular night, the campus lost heat; so 
everyone had to find a way to stay 
warm while partying the night away. 
Despite the inconvenience, every- 
one danced and enjoyed the show.

Good Times 

Monday night of Senior Week, the 
graduates got their first chance to 
enjoy themselves outside of our 
Framingham campus. Although it 
took a while to get everything ready 
to go, finally the senior class pulled 
out, and headed for the Boston 
dance club: Downstairs At Nick's. 
Along with plenty of good friends, 
good music, and a great place to 
dance, we were given a new and in- 
teresting activity. Pick a song, 
they'd play the video and you'd get 
the chance to go on stage and either 
lip-sync or sing the song yourself. 

The evening's entertainment pro- 
vided many different musical styles 
ranging from Dave Lennon doing 
Sinatra and Dan Ward doing Man- 
ilow to Madonna takeoffs and the 
Class of 90 singing "Please Mr. 
Postman." The crowd's renditions 
of the musical selections provided a 
break in the dancing and added an 
extra laugh to the evening.

This year the senior class included 
a Harbor Cruise during senior week 
events. The cruise, one of the week's 
more popular happenings, let the 
Seniors and their friends party in a 
different atmosphere while ex- 
periencing Boston in an unusual 
and exciting manner which they 

may not have thought of before. 
While on the boat, it gives you a dif- 
ferent outlook: you aren't stuck in- 
side a hot, dark club. You can 
choose to either be inside the boat, 
dancing with your friends, or if that 
gets too crowded, you can take time 
out and go on deck to look at the city 

and the Harbor. It can be some- 
thing that is a very refreshing break 
to the party scene or if you're a 
couple looking for a place to be 
alone, up on deck looking at the 
stars could be the perfect interrup- 
tion to the evening's events. It lets 
everyone party to their own taste.

On Thursday, May 19, 1989 an- 
other Framingham tradition took 
place to add to the seniors festivities. 
The Commencement Ball, one of 
the more formal events of the week, 
allows for the graduates and their 
friends to dress in their best and 
enjoy a good meal along with a 
night of dancing. Couples appreci- 
ated the talent of the live band, 
dancing and getting together with 

friends to talk or catch up. The ball 
lasted far into the night and the 
people who attended this gala affair 
were impressed with the elegance of 
the night. Seeing that this will be 
the one of the few formal events 
where the graduates can celebrate 
in a elegant fashion, it allows for a 
new taste of accomplishment and a 
feeling of success as they present 
themselves in the best way possible.

1 he Discovery of 

The challenges have all been met. Graduation: this is one's opportu- 
nity to celebrate the achievements of one's lifetime at F.S.C. Years of 
hard work, as seen in papers and exams, are brought together in a cer- 
emony the graduate will remember. The commemoration of the 1989 
Sesquicentennial graduating class was no different. 

The day overflowed with great excitement shown in the faces of the 
graduates looking toward the event of their day. Keynote Speaker 
Thomas "Tip" O'Neill, Jr. congratulated the graduates on what they 
have done, urging them to move into the future by using the past his- 
tory to help overcome new obstacles. 

The ceremony was filled with speeches celebrating what the gradu- 
ating class of '89 has accomplished. 
The College also conferred 
honorary degrees on George Per- 
rone, a music teacher from the 
Framingham Schools; Dudley 
Herschbach, Nobel Prize winner for 
Chemistry in 1986; Speaker of the 
U.S. House of Representatives 
Thomas P. O'Neill, Jr.; Henry Hamp- 
ton, producer and filmmaker; and 
Louise Kingman a member of the 
class of 1917. 

The graduates have come to the 
end of the original plan set before 
them in freshman year. With the 
completion of this task, graduates 
have new challenges to face. 
Whether continuing their education 
toward a Masters degree or going 
out to become part of the working 
world, graduates have learned to 
take their desire to learn and apply it 
to all they will discover, furthering 
the effect F.S.C. will have on their

t riends 

By: Brian C. Burrlll 

Since we've been together 
Everything's been easier 
We've enjoyed the pleasures 
Faced the bad times until the end 
And sometimes we may argue 
And maybe we might even get mad 
But because we are together 
We remember the good times we had 

That's what friends are for 
Life goes on just like before 
If you're not the least bit sure 
You've got a friend and that's the cure 

Now we've gone the distance 

And who we've met, go their separate ways 

Like the feathers on an eagle 

Through it's flight 

Some leave and some stay 

Now comes the time of parting 

We all laugh, we think and we cry 

But the memories will stay with us 

And life goes on 

After we say goodbye 

But we're gonna still be friends 
We may leave but it's not the end 
Deep inside you'll still be there 
We're far away but you'll still be near 

Hold on to your memories

Closing 261 


from the Editor 

Our time has come to close this edition, 
and this last piece of body copy seemed the 
furtherest down on our list of things to do. 
But here it is. "The challenge of today, and 
the discovery of tomorrow"; this was our 
theme, ever so subtly depicted (and prob- 
ably missed) . . . We certainly found it a 
challenge to successfully fill 264 pages with 
past events. The discovery of tomorrow will 
come after the benefits of this experience 
are utilized elsewhere in each of our lives. 
The theme ties in with the seniors four years 
as the space shuttle Challenger took flight 
during freshman year and the Discovery in 
their senior year. The graphics (thanks to 
Mac) depict a sun dial, overtones of the 
1939 edition, and of course, current ideas. 
Teamwork, to the staff, was an important 
theme because it was the vital glue to the 
organization and the completion of this 

It is that teamwork that allowed us to take 
on a larger responsibility of increasing the 
size of the edition to include an extra 32 
pages devoted purely to the past history of 
this institution. The process proved to be a 
challenge. We not only had to concentrate 

on the events of the past year, but also find a 
representative sample of the years before 
us. We hope that we have portrayed that 
history in the best way possible. 

Now, as we the editors look back on our 
work this year we recognize the effort it 
took. For example, 93% of the book was 
completed after June 1 st and that required 
many long hours both in and out of the 
office. It was amazing where our ideas 
came to light, in the shower, in that thirty 
seconds before we went to sleep, and 5 
o'clock in the morning and it just had to be 
written down before we could complete the 
task at hand. 

And while it's been hard convincing 
those around us (our individual support 
systems) that what we were doing wasn't a 
waste of time, we know that when we look at 
the final product (in about 10 months) we 
can be proud that something we have created 
will be in existence long after we leave FSC, 
but the experience and memories will also 
never leave. 

We could not have completed this with- 
out help from the many people. To begin, 
Kristin, the Copy editor went above the call 

of duty and put up with the constant de- 
mand on quality writing, a simple thank- 
you doesn't even touch the surface. Mike, 
we're glad you were around, both for pro- 
fessional support and personal support, 
your opinion was always valued — not al- 
ways asked for but still appreciated. To the 
Company Representatives, Arnie Lohman 
(Hunter Publishing) and Norm Benrimo 
(Yearbook Associates), your support was 
tremendous, thanks for giving us that extra 
mile. Jonathon Blake saved us from many 
scrapes with his extra photography contri- 
butions, if it wasn't for you many of the can- 
dids and most of graduation would be 
lacking. Marilyn Foley and Beverly Weiss 
continually supported us with the added 
project of the Sesquicentennial section. We 
could go on and on with our gratitude, so to 
each and every person who offered advice, 
support, photography, a friendly smile on a 
bad day, and their love, THANKS!!!! 

This now concludes the ramblings of the 
Editors. Congratulations and good luck to 
the staff members who graduated. This is 
one year we won't forget for a long time.
